Technology Center of DuPage fire science open house

This from Andy Hilk:

On my days off I teach a fire science class to high school students that is run through the Technology Center of DuPage (TCD).  TCD is a Career and Technical Education (CTE) High School for juniors and seniors attending high school in DuPage County and has about 1,100 students enrolled that attend either a morning or afternoon session.  Programs of study include Fire Science/EMT, Criminal Justice, Auto Body, Construction, and many more.
 
This past Saturday, TCD, which is on Swift Road in Addison, had our annual expo and the students participated in a mock crash scenario in the parking lot assisted by the Addison FPD.  Last year the Wood Dale FPD donated two vehicles to TCD;  a 1980’s vintage Pierce Dash which was x-Engine 68 I believe, and a Ford/Wheeled Coach ambulance. The rigs have now been lettered as TCD rigs with an acknowledgement to Wood Dale.

Wood Dale firefighter wins lottery

The Daily Herald has an article describing a $1 million windfall for a Wood Dale fireman.

A Wood Dale firefighter recently struck lottery pay dirt when he won $1 million playing Halloween Millionaire Raffle.

Michael Thomson bought the winning raffle ticket on Sept. 28 at WD Tobacco, 355 Georgetown Square, in Wood Dale during a lunch break with a few co-workers, according to Illinois Lottery officials. His victory was announced Wednesday.

“We each bought a ticket,” Thomson said in a statement. “I never thought I would be the lucky one.”

The Palatine resident learned about his good fortune several days after the Nov. 1 drawing because word had gotten out that WD Tobacco had sold a winning ticket.

Thomson, who has been with the Wood Dale Fire Protection [District] since 2002, isn’t expected to quit his job as a firefighter-paramedic, according to lottery officials. After taxes, [he] received a lump sum of $700,000. He said he’s going buy a new house “with a huge backyard” for his dog Ariel, who is a 100-pound English mastiff.
